Integrating Cryoskin + Endosphères Treatments: The differences between these two modalities and why they should be integrated for best results.
First, the differences:
CryoSlimming®️ works by subjecting the subcutaneous layer of skin (where most fat is stored) to sub-zero temperatures. This cold exposure causes the fat cells in the treated area to initiate apoptosis: "an active, programmed process of cellular dismantling." Said another way, apoptosis programs these fat cells to expire. They are then converted to waste and expelled from the body via urine, sweat and breath. The elimination of these cells, once apoptosis has been initiated, is carried out by the lymphatic system - this can be achieved through exercise as well as a variety of lymphatic drainage modalities.
CryoToning®️ works by applying cold temperatures to the top two layers of skin (the epidermis and the dermis). The cold from the wand, plus the warmth from the technician's hand alternately create vasoconstriction (i.e. oxygenated blood flow in the smallest vessels) which in turn boosts collagen and elastin production, helping to firm skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Endosphères Therapy is particularly powerful lymphatic drainage modality. Endosphères Therapy works by applying compressive microvibration to the legs, gluteus, abdomen, back, and arms. These low frequency vibrations are achieved by the cylinder within the handpick which contains fifty-five rotating silicone spheres. The cylinder rotates at a given frequency (or speed). This plus the staggered arrangement of the spheres creates microvibration while the weight of the handpiece and the pressure applied by the technician creates compression.
Endosphères Therapy achieves lymphatic drainage via this compression and microvibration which works to move trapped fluids and toxins towards the nearest lymphatic duct where they can then be cycled out of the body via the lymphatic system.
Additionally, thanks to the benefits of compression and microvibration, Endosphères stimulates microcirculation in the treated areas, boosting collagen and elastin production as well as metabolic exchanges (i.e. preventing lymphatic stasis and the stagnation and accumulation of toxins).
Endopshères Therapy also works to restore skin structure. What does this mean and how do I know if my skin structure needs restoring? Aesthetic pathologies like cellulite are an indication that person's skin structure has been altered from the natural aesthetic shape (think: smoothness) that would have otherwise been maintained by homeostasis (that is, balance in the tissues of the body). Endosphères works to restore skin structure first by eliminating trapped toxins from the tissues (a major culprit in causing imbalances in the tissues of the body) and then by restoring the skin structure via the physical action of compression microvibration which works to break up fibrous aggregates (another contributor to the visual appearance of cellulite). Importantly, Endosphères Therapy does not directly eliminate fat. Likewise, manual CryoSlimming®️ does not directly boost lymphatic action.
Why it is recommended to integrate these modalities:
As you can see from the differences highlighted above, CryoSlimming®️ pairs exceptionally well with Endosphères Therapy. While CryoSlimming®️ eliminates fat, Endosphères Therapy boots lymphatic action to aid in the disposal of fat cell debris. It is recommended to wait at least 48-72 hours after a CryoSlimming®️ to incorporate an Endosphères Therapy session.
It is also beneficial to integrate CryoToning®️ with Endosphères Therapy to reduce cellulite. CryoToning®️ uses cold (from Cryoskin wand) and heat (from the technician's hand) application to minimize the appearance of cellulite by boosting collagen and elastin production. Integrating Endosphères Therapy will achieve more long-lasting cellulite reduction benefits because Endosphères works on eliminating the causes of cellulite (i.e. toxin stagnation, imbalances in the tissues, fibrousness) - the reduction in cellulite simply a happy consequence of the therapy. It is recommended to wait a minimum of 48 hours between a CryoToning®️ session and Endosphères Therapy session.
In general, we recommend a minimum of twelve Endosphères Therapy sessions for six weeks. (Treatments should be applied twice a week with a minimum of 48 hours between sessions).
When integrating CryoSlimming®️ sessions, we recommend receiving two-three Endosphères sessions prior to a CryoSlimming®️ session (to boost lymphatic action). After a CryoSlimming®️ session, we recommend waiting at least 48-72 hours before receiving an Endosphères Therapy session.
When integrating CryoToning®️ sessions, we recommend waiting 48 hours between a CryoToning®️ and an Endosphères Therapy session.
